Reverse Design o la deconstrucción proyectual del diseño

Iglesias, Rodrigo Martin;


Reverse engineering is been applied in industry for many years, particularly in the context of the software industry, with the subsequent theoretical development, especially from the 1990s. In this paper we propose to realize their potential application to the field of design, and then characterize the concept of Reverse Design, associated with the idea of projectual deconstruction, concept that has great po- tential, from didactics to the optimization of materials and energy. Based on a literature review of the state, we will use the basic texts of reverse engineering to establish parallels, differences and contributions to the discipline.
